This year, we welcome you to an ongoing learning space called Visions for Our Collective Future, which features free public workshops throughout 2023. Together, we’ll learn about solidarity economies, community land trusts, community ownership, and cooperative economic approaches to housing and economic development.
You're invited to join us on Sunday, April 2nd, from 1:30pm-4:30pm, for part 3 in this shared education series. This event is free and open to the public. Refreshments, childcare and interpretation services will be available. More details coming soon! RSVP below for updates.
As we explore pathways towards community ownership on the West Side, in Session Three we’ll learn more about the Mixed Income Neighborhood Trust (MINT) model, taking time to put our collective creative energy to work on ideas for using the land at the Baker Lot (76 Baker St E) and more.
What is community ownership?
Community Ownership is about sharing power and control of land use decisions with our neighbors. It’s about getting together to meet our needs and to collectively provide choices that keeps the wealth generated on the West Side within our community and protects us from exclusionary development practices that have historically taken resources away from us and have harmed our collective well being.
